Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a hatch the day after they arrived!! Our Manager bought these for a co-worker and I, since we are both nature-junkies!! She had ordered the lot of (3), but (4) were delivered. I arrived at the office early the next day and heard a strange crunching sound coming from one of the sacks. Withing half an hour there was our beautiful Luna Moth! so incredible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! None of the cocoons produced moths! We spent a small fortune on 3 completey dead luna moth cocoons. What a huge disappointment to the children, and to the family who funded what we thought would be an amazing end to our lesson on metamorphosis. DO NOT BUY THESE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My First graders hatch the painted lady butterflies and the luna moths every year. It is such a great learning experience to compare moths and butterflies. We actually had a male and female hatch this year, They mated and we have eggs! When they are close to hatching you can feel them shaking in their cocoons! It was also amazing to watch as the luna moth grew after it hatched-they start out small and gradually the wings grow. If you are doing butterflies, you should absolutely do the luna moth too. All our cocoons have hatched every year. You just need to be patient! Totally worth it!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Luna Moths did not hatch I carefully read the instructions upon how to take care of my three Luna Moth Cocoons when they arrived in the mail. It has been weeks and to no avail have they hatched. I believe they are dead. Placing the three in a fridge to reset them, will not work - if they are no longer living. From this bad experience, I am convinced to shall shop elsewhere in the future for my moth/butterfly needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but had one issue for me I would recommend this to anyone! Great product. Only thing is that one of my moths had started emerging from its cocoon when it shipped and he was stuck in there due to the packing so once I finally helped him emerge his wings never unfolded even though he had ample space. It was really sad. Otherwise the other moths did amazing and are stunning
